Looking out for the Brighton Belle
This photograph, taken from the Hampstead Road entrance of Preston Park station [brings back vivid memories]. When I was about seven or eight my brother worked in London and used to travel up to London by train from Preston Park station every day. I also used to go train spotting and this was a great place to spot the trains and watch the Brighton Belle coming into Brighton. Later on this was my route to school. I used to walk under the tunnel at Preston Park station down to Preston road and then up the other side of the hill.
